Our High School Service-Learning Clubs are off to a great start in 2022! All 7 on-campus clubs with a combined total of 140 participants led by 35 Hands4Hope Youth Leaders are in the action phase of the service-learning model.
The El Dorado High and Oak Ridge Empower Clubs are supporting Sierra Wildlife Rescue. The El Dorado Club is selling Critter Grams to raise funds for a Miner’s Cat enclosure and hosting an Awareness Event on campus Feb 28th - March 4th. Oak Ridge Empower is hosting an Arts and Crafts Fair for children in April and will have several ambassador animals from Sierra Wildlife Rescue at the event.
Union Mine High School is planning a “No Cat Left Behind” on-campus class competition to raise funds for a kitten incubator for Animal Outreach of the Mother Lode.
The Oak Ridge Inspire Club selected youth as their area of need and are benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters by hosting a carnival for children and adults waiting for a big brother/big sister match. They are planning a dine out night to provide funds for the event.
The Folsom High Club selected children with special needs as their area of need. They raised $175 toward their project with a Sourdough & Co dine out night in December and hosted an Amazon Wish List Campaign for party supplies and candy. They created and delivered over 400 personalized valentine candy grams in February to select classes on campus which include students in the Special Education Program. They are also planning an after-school Spring Fling Social in March to provide an inclusive and fun event for these same classmates.
The Vista del Lago Club is planning an on campus advisory class challenge to benefit Shriners Children’s Hospital. They are planning a marketing campaign to inspire their student body to consider what a teen in long term hospital care would need for entertainment and comfort. They are doing this by hosting a drive for teen gifts such as art kits, gift cards, games and warm items like socks and beanies.
